Global Challenges: Automation and Digitalization
Arts and Society, Cross-Disciplinary Strategies
2018W, Lecture and Discussion (VOD), 2.0 semester hours, course number S02534
The biological foundations of human perception, cognition and behavior have been shaped by evolutionary constraints and therefore a mismatch between evolved mechanisms and challenges of modern technology can be observed. This lecture attempts to identifiy areas of evolutionary mismatch and discuss how knowledge about the biological foundations of human behavior and cognition can help to design in a way that allows humans to interact intuitively with innovations.
The course will consist of theoretical input and discussion. Students will be required to read scientific publications and report on them, evaluate empirical findings and draw conclusions for their field of work.
Evaluation of student performance will consist of three parts:
Quality of oral and written contributions
Active participation in the discussion
At least two of the three parts must be evaluated positively to allow for a student to pass the exam.
Reading list will be provided
